Short Extension to an AST
My tenants are trying to buy a property, and expect to move out "soon", but have no completion date yet. They have just passed the 2 months' threshold date at which I can give them notice to quit at the end of the current tenancy (AST ending 24 May 2017). I would be content for them to extend the current tenancy until they complete their purchase, otherwise they may end up signing a new AST and giving notice before it begins. How should I mitigate the potential risks? What is the legal position if the current AST ends and no new AST has been agreed?
